This paper aims to demonstrate that trust commanded an important place among the concepts of seventeenth-century political thought. Understanding the place of trust within the political thought of Hobbes and Locke helps to comprehend the fundamental differences of their positions. A focus on trust permits better understanding of their different uses and connotations of more explicit political and juridical concepts such as punishment, sovereignty, or resistance. Engaging with Hobbes’s argument, Locke tried to advance the discussion of trust in a distinctively different direction.
